Discovery systems as convergence : a systematic review of the research literature on an emerging library technology
Discovery systems were developed in 2009 and bring together the results from disparate databases such as the library catalog, electronic article databases, and ebook packages (Open Discovery Initiative Working Group, 2014). ... Significance: Given the focus on academic settings, not all library types or users are represented in the literature, which points to a need for further research. This study demonstrates that the scholarly communications surrounding discovery systems are evolving, moving from technologists to a merging or converging of general responsibilities and concerns.
